Netherlands -Port workers announce strike -November 24, 2015

Container workers at the Port of Rotterdam have voted to hold a series of 24-hour strikes in December and January in protest at possible job cuts. The workers demand guarantees of no layoffs for the coming nine years. Major container employers ECT, APMT and RWG have rejected that demand in contract talks that have been running since April 2015.
